    I currently have the iHA 6 running HD800 balanced with a Schiit Freya preamp controlling volume. The iHA6 volume is at 3 o'clock and the Freya controls the voltage via stepped resistors.

    Complete balanced setup from DAC to Headphone:
    Lossless - HoloAudio Spring Lvl 3 DAC - Schiit Freya with Psvane and Tung sol tubes - Cayin iHA 6 - HD800/Ath-R70x/Emu Teak/Hifiman he560

    This is 2 levels up from Schiit Jotunheim (I had for 2 weeks and sold off) if anyone is wondering. I actually prefer the iHA6 to the Schiit Raganarok except maybe on the HE560! While the Ragnarok is a specimen of an amp the iHA6 adds a nice touch of musicality while keeping similary transparency. I believe the $999 pricing was warranted for the performance if those wondering why it was priced in that tier. Audio-Gd while having excellent value and sound doesn't have the beautiful finishing touch Cayin has to their units.

    I'm very happy with mine, Using the zmf Omni / ori or the he560. Much better thus my other amps for my ears. I hardly recognize the Omni as. The same hp. The sound is so open and clear. I believe the iha6 to be a steal.

    Tonight I have on the iHA6 with the emu teak balanced and listening to some Chris Botti (Impressions and also Italia album). Absolutely breathtaking synergy.

    Can't wait to bring the amp to the next meet to get people to hear it.

    Cool! I've been playing with the ZMF Eikon and the iHA6/iDAC6 today and I had the same thoughts. :thumbsup_tone1:

    Hi,

    Anybody using the IHA-6 with Utopia? Good match?

    I am thinking about upgrading the Mjolnir 2 to Ragnarok, but then I saw this.

    Also, how does it compare with Auralic Taurus MKII?

    Thanks!

    I would like to know how it compares to the Auralic Taurus Mk.II, since I currently own an Auralic.

    So, if you are in USA, where do you buy the 110v version from? There are two Chinese sellers on eBay selling them for $675 shipped, but they have the 220v version only (I checked). Thanks.

    I just bought a US one from Rebound Audio on amazon. They don't seem to be listing one there now
    but they are listing at the store on on Bonanza.com.

    ^^ Don't be idiotic guys, the thing is asking for which size you'd like to buy. Be aware that's a 'oopsy' listing that's not even worth $91 spending on.

    I am however offering mine... here :package:

    Right here in the US. :L3000: Specifically at The Source AV. We only sell US voltage and warranted products from Cayin.

    Be advised these amps are region specific. All 120v units are made specific to that voltage. There are Chinese companies modifying 220v units into 120v that voids the factory warranty immediately.

    Bonanza.com is not an authorized dealer for Cayin and they are selling 220v units.
